Musical polymath Mark de Clive-Lowe seems an impossibility at first sight - juggling piano, synths, live sampling and beat making on-the-fly with a casual ease that’s mind-bogglingly brought to life. The half-Japanese New Zealander has called LA home for almost 8 years now and his acclaimed club night CHURCH has taken his brand of electronic and beat-infused jazz from coast to coast and around the globe. Equal parts jazz musician, DJ and production wizard, MdCL’s sets are a treat for the dancers, the listeners, the progressives and the purists alike, as he casually erases the lines between genres and eras.
